Booklist Review

Gr. 7^-10. From the World History series, The Industrial Revolution explores the changes in technology and working conditions that evolved in the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries and the far-reaching social effects that have resulted from those changes. Beginning with England but also discussing Europe and America at some length, this book tells its story concisely and illustrates it with black-and-white photos, engravings, diagrams, and maps. Looking beyond the expected topics of the steam engine, cotton gin, and electric power, Corrick discusses the history, changing technology, and social impact of computers. Gr. 5^-8. The Industrial Revolution in American History, from the In American History series, describes many of the same innovations and social changes discussed in the other book. The larger type and smaller pages limit the space available, but by focusing on American history and ending its time frame in 1946, this book competently surveys the topic as McCormick defines it. The illustrations include black-and-white reproductions of period photos, portraits, and documents. --Carolyn Phelan
